When he’s not getting arrested for staging flash mobs, Cleveland rapper Machine Gun Kelly is working on his Bad Boy Records debut, Lace Up. “Wild Boy” is the latest we’re hearing from the project, which is apparently due out later this year and, too, aims to capitalize on that over-the-top fight music sound.
At least, that’s the goal of this track, which pairs up MGK with the always-aggro Waka Flocka Flame and features a hook dedicated to Steve-O. It’s Waka that actually serves as the inspiration for “Wild Boy,” because MGK spends half of the time spitting like Waka with that shout-y, intimidating style. The other half? He’s using that quick-tongued delivery akin to fellow Cleveland natives Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. Please keep doing that, MGK, and leave the Waka-ness to, well, Waka.
